climbing | Little Pnuts

What a better way to celebrate Earth Day, everyday, than by creating an activity with recyclables with your Little Pnut?  Don’t toss those cardboard boxes to the curb…save them up and create some Giant Duct Tape Building Blocks instead!


 

 

 

 

What You Will Need

  • A variety of sturdy cardboard boxes in different sizes. Diaper boxes work great for this activity as do Little Pnut Special Delivery Boxes.
  • Several rolls of duct tape (we used a few different primary colors)

 

Creating the Blocks

To create your blocks, simply wrap each cardboard box tightly and evenly with duct tape. The duct tape adds enough stability so that if your boxes were sturdy to begin with, younger Little Pnuts can actually climb on them!

Play

These fun, mega-sized blocks have infinite possibilities.  Younger Little Pnuts will enjoy exploring the physical properties of the blocks by pushing, climbing, stacking, and sitting on them.  Older Little Pnuts can add to the fun by building towers and using the blocks for imaginative play.  Build some walls and drape a blanket across the top for a totally awesome fort!  If you’ve used different colors, engage your Little Pnut in some fun color learning activities with the blocks.  Building with blocks of any size is an excellent early math activity as well.

 

Developmental Milestones:

This activities focuses on the following Developmental Milestones for your Little Pnuts:

Cognitive Development, Gross Motor Skill Development, Focus and Concentration, Sensory Exploration, Imaginative Play
